Vintage Color Palette - House of Tomorrow

Vintage Color Palette - House of Tomorrow - read more and see hex codes on the blog

This vintage color palette is super interesting. The postcard was made for the Century of Progress Expo which was held at the 1933 Worlds Fair in Chicago. This was The House of Tomorrow.

This house was what they envisioned for the future. The inside looks pretty mid-century and not that surprising from what I saw online. The garage has a pace for a small airplane.

The color palette must have been what they also envisioned for the future. It evokes luxury, ease and modern technology. I really like this combo. I think it would be great in a wallpaper pattern.

The hex color codes are left to right: f78b6a, f5a490, f9e3b3, 8a9ebe

Here is an photo of the house from The Worlds Fair.

The House of Tomorrow - 1933 Worlds Fair -

Built for Chicago’s 1933-34 Century of Progress International Exposition, the House of Tomorrow showcased modern home convenience and creative practical new building materials and techniques to nearly 50 million visitors. 

This three-story, 12-sided house of the future held was made of steel and walls of glass with modern technologies like air-conditioning, a dishwasher, electric “eyes” to open the kitchen and garage doors and a built-in airplane hangar.
